It’s been said of cable TV, “A thousand channels and 90% of it is crap.” The same is now true of streaming services.
My wife and I wanted to watch something tonight. Amazon had seemingly millions of cop, detective, and period dramas. They were all variations on the same theme. Go over to Netflix where the auto-play video is supremely annoying and the UI was designed by a high school student with ADD. More millions of cop and detective shows. And Britain in the 1800’s.
I have nothing against cop or period dramas but I question why we’re supplied with millions of them. The answer: They’re mindless entertainment, and the more that exist the longer we’ll stay on the site and click, click, click.
Except I won’t.
